Winter Pressures Appointments

Primary Care In-Hours Winter and Bank Holiday Scheme

Blackburn Road Medical Centre has signed up to deliver an increased number of appointments for a 26 week period from 4th December 2017 to
1st June 2018.

The intention is to support increased demand during the Winter season by providing additional appointments at the Practice. These will be available at our Birkenshaw branch.

This will enable patients to more easily book an appointment when ailments are more prevalent and access to Primary care clinicians is needed.

Please ask at Reception for further details.

When you dial the Practice from Wednesday 7th February, you will be able to select from the following options:

Press 1 for Appointments, Press 2 for Home Visits, Press 3 for Prescription Queries, Press 4 for Test Results, Press 5 for a Referral or Choose & Book enquiry,
